    I had 3 phone interviews and I thought they went pretty good. But, the offer was declined. Not sure what went wrong. I must admit that I did not express too much enthusiasm in their work.

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at NVIDIA.

    Interview Details

    Got a phone interview through referral. Went through past projects experience and talked about my interests. The technical questions were kind of out of the box so I was not able to answer all of them. Then the recruiter went over the basics of the position. It seems they are looking for people who are very talented and also creative.

    Interview Details

    Pretty straight forward. They like people from competitors. Senior management seems to really want external people. They will not promote people internally. So go in with a bloated title and you will most likely get a good position.

    Interviewed through career fair. Questions are given regarding computer architecture, C/C++ coding, circuit design, FSM. Though questions are seemingly not difficult, they are very difficult to answer comprehensively, and missing points will leave a negative expression.

    Interview Details

    I applied at the college job fair. They assigned us several problems before receiving resumes. Common digital circuits questions like designing sequence detectors. The booth is small and crowded and noisy and it's a little challenge to answer those questions as quickly as you can do in an exam.
